According to the National Institute of Health, more than 80% of the US population will feel the misery of acute back pain at some time during their life, and an estimated 10% of the population has chronic lower back pain, making the condition the second most common cause of disability claims.

While the root causes of back pain are many - including sprains and strains, accidents, and spinal degeneration - there are other common issues that add to the misery: too much time spent sitting, lack of exercise, poor posture, genetics, and repetitive workplace motions, to name just a few.

Although a good mattress isn't going to completely cure a bad back, it can go far in helping relieve the pain. Sleeping on a mattress that doesn't give proper support - especially an old, saggy mattress - is a recipe for a morning marked by stiffness and "ouch" with every bend and twist.
